A youth-based human rights and good governance advocacy group, Youth Advocates for Peace Justice and Empowerment Network (YAPJEN), on Wednesday, May 22, 2019, offered scholarships to five undergraduate students of the Nnamdi Azikiwe University (Unizik) Awka.

Executive Director of the group, Amb. Timothy Nwachukwu, made the cash presentation of the scholarship award at the Law Students Senate Legislative Day and Award ceremony which held at the Faculty of Law of the University at its Awka campus.

The epoch-making event, which witnessed an award presentation to some academic giants in the faculty attracted many personalities, including a Senior Advocate of Nigeria and Professor of Law, Offornze Amucheazi; Prof. Meshack Umenweke, Dean of the Faculty of Law; Prof. Ibe; and Barr. Obinna Mbanugo all from the Faculty of Law Nnamdi Azikiwe University Awka amongst other special guests.

Speaking at the event, the renowned Professor of Law, Prof. Offornze Amucheazi, urged the students to strive for excellence as the legal profession offers its practitioners uncommon opportunity to excel in any field of human endeavour.

Prof. Umenweke, the Dean of the Faculty and the Chief Host who was honoured with The Great  Motivator of Nigerian Students Award commended the Organisers of the event for putting up such uncommon event for the benefit of the students, he reminded the students that their primary aim is to excel in their academic pursuits.

He encouraged the students to work hard and graduate with good grades and also advised them to eschew examination malpractices as its consequences are better imagined than experienced.

Mr. Obinna Mbanugo, the deputy staff adviser of the law student association, stated that his love and passion for students is unrivaled and hence his decision to identify with the LAWSA Senate in the ground-breaking event.

The event, which witnessed a Legislative debate organised by the LAWSA Senate, saw a student, Nzeakor Nonso, emerging the winner.

The high point of the occasion was the scholarship presentation to five indigent students which was facilitated by, Amb. Timothy Nwachukwu, the Executive Director of YAPJEN through the support of the SSA to the Governor of Anambra State on Petroleum and Union Matters, Hon Peter Nwosu.

A very delighted Prof. Offornze Amucheazi who was touched by the kind gesture of the youth advocacy group announced a donation of N100,000 to support the group. However, to the amazement of all, Amb. Timothy Nwachukwu announced an additional one year scholarship to another indigent student.

In his closing remarks, Prof. Amucheazi promised to sponsor the indigent students who were given scholarship by YAPJEN throughout their remaining years in the University.

The President of the LAWSA Senate, Rt. Hon. Kingsley Anolue, thanked all the special guests and students who left their busy schedules to be part of the event.
